Yahushua in 1 Enoch

Posted in 01 : The Chief Cornerstone with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 09/02/2010 by timenolonger

More believers understand and accept 1 Enoch as scripture now than they have for perhaps over a thousand years.

Those who do, realize that among those things which have been a reason for its suppression are records which explain an angelic rebellion which changed the world forever, and a direct address to those who would be living during the tribulation.

Suppressing this evidence means depriving believers of a complete knowledge of last days prophecy, as even Yahushua Himself made that connection by saying “the last days will be like the days of Noah”.
Mat 24:37

1 Enoch has not only been rejected from canon to suppress these things though, and there are further serious implications to consider.

It perhaps does not much impact the modern day believer in Yahushua to find references to Him in 1 Enoch, but His presence in the verses of that book carries great weight.

Orthodox Judaism rejects 1 Enoch now, though Israel did not always reject the text.

Jewish believers in Yahushua’s time knew the book and understood its contents. Only after Messiah came, did Jews cease to regard the book as valid.

The reason for this becomes very obvious when reading it. 1 Enoch is a record of the oldest written prophecies in the world of Yahushua.

Not only is the book full of references to Him, but those references are nearly exact to references and descriptions of Him which can be read in the New Testament.

The 1 Enoch support for Yahushua being who He claimed He was is so overwhelming that adherents to Orthodox Judaism would logically either have to accept that it foretells of Yahushua without a doubt, or reject the text, and work hard to bury it.

Christians who reject 1 Enoch as scripture do not realize that they are rejecting the strongest and most irrefutable evidence for the legitimacy of their Savior which ever existed before His appearance on Earth.

Here I have shown the references to Yahushua in 1 Enoch and the New Testament Scriptures which correlate to them.

You will find very often that He is referred to as the Son of Man, a term of reference which most believers understand as a completely New Testament way of describing Him, yet it was written in this book much before the New Testament was recorded.

1 Enoch 45: 3-6

3 On that day Mine Elect One shall sit on the throne of glory

And shall try their works, And their places of rest shall be innumerable.

And their souls shall grow strong within them when they see Mine Elect One,

And those who have called upon My glorious name: 4 Then will I cause Mine Elect One to dwell among them.

And I will transform the heaven and make it an eternal blessing and light
5 And I will transform the earth and make it a blessing:

And I will cause Mine elect ones to dwell upon it:
But the sinners and evil-doers shall not set foot thereon.

6 For I have provided and satisfied with peace My righteous ones
And have caused them to dwell before Me:

But for the sinners there is judgement impending with Me,
So that I shall destroy them from the face of the earth.

And I heard a loud voice from the sky saying, “Behold! The tent of Yahuwah is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. Yahuwah Himself will be with them and be their ‘Eloah.

And Yahuwah will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold! I make all things new.”

And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.” And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.

I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things and I will be his ‘Eloah and he shall be My son.

But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, image worshippers, and all liars shall have their part in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

– Revelation 21:1-8

1 Enoch 46:1-5

1 And there I saw One who had a head of days,
And His head was white like wool,
And with Him was another being whose countenance had the appearance of a man,
And His face was full of graciousness, like one of the holy angels.
2 And I asked the angel who went with me and showed me all the hidden things, concerning that 3 Son of Man, who He

was, and whence He was, (and) why He went with the Head of Days? And he answered and said unto me:
This is the Son of Man who hath righteousness,
With whom dwelleth righteousness,
And who revealeth all the treasures of that which is hidden,

Because the Lord of Spirits hath chosen Him,
And whose lot hath the pre-eminence before the Lord of Spirits in uprightness for ever.

4 And this Son of Man whom thou hast seen
Shall raise up the kings and the mighty from their seats,
[And the strong from their thrones]
And shall loosen the reins of the strong,
And break the teeth of the sinners.

5 [And He shall put down the kings from their thrones and kingdoms]
Because they do not extol and praise Him,
Nor humbly acknowledge whence the kingdom was bestowed upon them.

His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire,

His feet like fine copper, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters.

He had in His right hand seven stars, out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword,

and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength.

– Revelation 1:14-16

1 Enoch 62:4-9

4 Then shall pain come upon them as on a woman in travail,
[And she has pain in bringing forth]
When her child enters the mouth of the womb,
And she has pain in bringing forth.

5 And one portion of them shall look on the other,
And they shall be terrified,
And they shall be downcast of countenance,
And pain shall seize them,
When they see that Son of Man Sitting on the throne of His glory.

For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them as labor pains upon a pregnant woman and they shall not escape.

But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.

– 1 Thesalonians 5:3-5

And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!

– Revelation 6:15,16

6 And the kings and the mighty and all who possess the earth shall bless and glorify and extol Him who rules over all, who was hidden.

7 For from the beginning the Son of Man was hidden,
And the Most High preserved Him in the presence of His might,
And revealed Him to the elect.

8 And the congregation of the elect and holy shall be sown,
And all the elect shall stand before Him on that day.

9 And all the kings and the mighty and the exalted and those who rule the earth
Shall fall down before Him on their faces,
And worship and set their hope upon that Son of Man,

Therefore the ‘Eloah has also highly exalted Him and given Him a name that is above every name, that at the name of Yahushua every knee should bow, of those in the sky, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Yahushua the Anointed is Master, to the splendor of Yahuwah the Father.

– Philipians 2:9-11

1 Enoch 62:14,15

14 And the Lord of Spirits will abide over them,
And with that Son of Man shall they eat
And lie down and rise up for ever and ever.

15 And the righteous and elect shall have risen from the earth,
And ceased to be of downcast countenance.
And they shall have been clothed with garments of glory,

After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes with palm branches in their hands and crying out with a loud voice saying, “Salvation to our ‘Eloah who sits on the throne and to the Lamb!”

All the messengers stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures and fell on their faces before the throne and worshipped Yahuwah saying, “Amein! Blessing and splendor and wisdom, thanksgiving and honor and power and might to our ‘Eloah forever and ever. Amein.”

Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes and where did they come from?” And I said to him, “Sir, you know.” So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore they are before the throne of Yahuwah and serve Him day and night in His sanctuary. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore. The sun shall not strike them, nor any heat for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters and Yahuwah will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

– Revelation 7:9-17

1 Enoch 69:26-29

26 And there was great joy amongst them,
And they blessed and glorified and extolled
Because the name of that Son of Man had been revealed unto them.

27 And He sat on the throne of His glory,
And the sum of judgement was given unto the Son of Man,
And He caused the sinners to pass away and be destroyed from off the face of the earth,
And those who have led the world astray.

28 With chains shall they be bound,
And in their assemblage-place of destruction shall they be imprisoned,
And all their works vanish from the face of the earth.

29 And from henceforth there shall be nothing corruptible;
For that Son of Man has appeared,
And has seated himself on the throne of His glory,
And all evil shall pass away before His face,
And the word of that Son of Man shall go forth

And be strong before the Lord of Spirits.

Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the sky fled away and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before Yahuwah, and books were opened. And another book was opened, that is the Book of Life, and the dead were judged according to their works, by the things that were written in the books.

The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and she’owl delivered up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one according to his works. Then death and she’owl were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.

Now I saw a new sky and a new earth for the first sky and the first earth had passed away and there was no more sea. Then I, Yahuchanan, saw the sacred city, New Yeruwshalaim, coming down out of the sky from Yahuwah, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

And I heard a loud voice from the sky saying, “Behold! The tent of Yahuwah is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. Yahuwah Himself will be with them and be their ‘Eloah. And Yahuwah will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

– Revelation 20:11-15, 21:1-4

1 Enoch 70:14-16

This is the Son of Man who is born unto righteousness,
And righteousness abides over Him,
And the righteousness of the Head of Days forsakes Him not.’
15 And he said unto me:
‘ He proclaims unto thee peace in the name of the world to come;
For from hence has proceeded peace since the creation of the world,
And so shall it be unto thee for ever and for ever and ever.

16 And all shall walk in His ways since righteousness never forsaketh Him:
With Him will be their dwelling-places, and with Him their heritage,
And they shall not be separated from Him for ever and ever and ever.

And so there shall be length of days with that Son of Man,
And the righteous shall have peace and an upright way
In the name of the Lord of Spirits for ever and ever.’

Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you, not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled nor let it be afraid.

– John 14:27

Praise be to YHWH who makes all truth manifest.

The Validity of 1Enoch

Posted in 02 : The Truth Is Out There... with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 04/26/2010 by timenolonger

If you ask most believers to explain what fallen angels are and how they came to be “fallen” they will explain the rebellion of Satan and those who followed him, which took place before man was made.

Few believers will mention a second group of rebels which, nonetheless, have gotten plenty of attention in scripture. The reason that this is such a little known event in spite of its biblical references, is that the book which gives the full account of it has been stricken from the canon.

Imagine if we lacked the book of Exodus and still were left with the many references to the events of Exodus throughout the rest of scripture. Would readers be able to understand the full story of how Hebrews were kept as Egyptian slaves, when this happened and how they were liberated, not to mention the 40 years of wandering in the desert and receiving the law?

How might understanding His law change if there was no full record of how it was received?

The book of Jude is accepted as valid scripture by canon and most believers but it has some things to say that lead to vast amounts of speculation by themselves. Take a look at these verses:

“Now Chanowk (Enoch), the seventh from ‘Adam, prophesied about these men also saying, “Behold! The Master comes with ten thousands of His saints to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are wicked among them of all their wicked deeds that they have committed in a wicked way, and of all the harsh things that irreverent sinners have spoken against Him.” ”
– Jude 14,15

Jude states he is quoting the words of Enoch, the seventh from Adam. It goes without saying that there is a huge gap of time between the lifetimes of Enoch and Jude, so how did Jude come by a prophecy from this ancient forefather of his unless it was written down and well known?

Does it make any sense to assume his contemporary audience would be scratching their heads in confusion, wondering where Jude came by this unknown prophecy allegedly given by Enoch, or does it make sense that Jude’s audience was already familiar with this prophecy and would understand from where he got it?

Compare the above verses in Jude to these verses from the book known as 1 Enoch or the “Ethiopian Enoch” :

“And behold! He cometh with ten thousands of His holy ones To execute judgement upon all, And to destroy all the ungodly: And to convict all flesh Of all the works of their ungodliness which they have ungodly committed,And of all the hard things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”
– 1 Enoch 1:9

I think it could not be any clearer that these were the very words Jude repeated in his writings as he himself and his contemporaries had access to, and knew well, the contents of 1 Enoch.

Amazingly i have actually had certain believers argue that “it’s not an exact quote.” Even with not taking into account having been translated from two different languages by separate English speaking individuals, the similarity of these two verses would constitute some incredibly improbable coincidence on multiple levels.

This example might be the most well known Jude-1 Enoch connection but it’s not the only one. Here is another:

“And the angels who did not keep their proper domain but left their own abode He has reserved in eternal chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day”
– Jude 6

It seems to be that for the most part believers take for granted that this is simply speaking about Satan and his followers, the problem with that idea comes from the fact that we all well know how active and present Satan’s influence in the world has been since the fall of man.

He’s hasn’t been bound in chains nor have his minions been. Some like to take this verse to mean figurative chains… meaning that Satan and his cohorts are “spiritually” under bondage… very interesting irony if you think about it carefully… Satan and his minions Are spirits, as the nature of angels are, so to bind one spiritually is not very figurative at all.

1 Enoch describes a certain group of angels, however, who were literally bound in fetters and contained in prison cells under the earth for sins which were different from those of the first rebellion by Satan and his followers:

“And the Lord said unto Michael: ‘Go, bind Semjaza and his associates who have united themselves with women so as to have defiled themselves with them in all their uncleanness. And when their sons have slain one another, and they have seen the destruction of their beloved ones, bind them fast for seventy generations in the valleys of the earth, till the day of their judgment and of their consummation, till the judgment that is for ever and ever is consummated.”
– 1 Enoch 9:11,12

Immediately following verse 6 in Jude which deals with the angels who were bound in chains, a comparison is made between this subject and the sins of Sodom and Gomorrah.

“as Sedom and Amorah and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example suffering the vengeance of eternal fire”
– Jude 7

…And by referring back to 9:11,12 in 1 Enoch it’s clear why such a comparison is made. “‘Go, bind Semjaza and his associates who have united themselves with women so as to have defiled themselves”
The sin for which these angels were bound was sexual immorality.

They took wives from among humans and had children by them. This is both a violation of His law against unlike kinds procreating and a violation of the nature of angelic beings, as no female angels were formed and they were not made to procreate.

Jude is, by far, not the only place references to the events described in 1 Enoch can be found. Some are more clear and some less due to a pointed attempt to translate out some of the implications of connectedness to this book.

One pretty clear reference can be found in Genesis 6.

“Now it came to pass when men began to multiply on the face of the earth and daughters were born to them that the sons of the ‘Elohiym saw the daughters of men were beautiful and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose. ”
– Genesis 6:1,2

“There were nephilim on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of the ‘Elohiym came in to the daughters of men and they bore to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown”
– Genesis 6:4

The word “nephilim” often rendered “giants” does not actually mean giant… though the connection between nephilim and giant stature is recorded elsewhere, particularly in Numbers.

Nephilim is sometimes translated as “fallen” though it is perhaps better translated as “a feller” in the sense of something or someone who strikes down others in violence. Interestingly, it is also connected with a premature or miscarried baby.

The term “sons of the Elohim” or “sons of God” is understood by many believers to refer to men who are faithful followers of YHWH. This is not at all the meaning of this phrase. The phrase has nothing technically to do with morality, but rather of origin.

A being who has no father other than their Creator is a Son of Elohim. Adam is called a son of Elohim because he was directly created by Him, angels are sons of Elohim because they were directly created by Him, Yahushua is called The Son of Elohim, having no mortal father and being unique in that He is the only Begotten (born of flesh by the Will of the Holy Spirit) son of Elohim.

Yahushua gives men the Power to become sons of Elohim in that they forsake their sinful flesh birthright to be born again as children of YHWH. This last is not the natural state of man, but rather the privilege of believers to become a New Creature in Him.

The old Testament does not refer to men as presently being sons of Elohim, no matter how faithful they are.

For a very long time Christians have had an idea drilled into their minds which makes very little rational sense. The idea that the canon is flawless. Christians will often parrot exactly what they have heard their seminary trained leaders tell them : “There can’t be mistakes in it, He promised to preserve His Word”…

And He did. He did not, however, say that men would not be able to add or subtract information, translate it badly or otherwise attempt to subvert its messages.

This is why believers can not take a lazy approach to learning His word…. It Is out there… but it is up to you to crack open a Strong’s Concordance… study and test in His Spirit extra-canonical texts and research carefully, thoroughly and without prejudice the origins of various translations of the bible, and who was behind them.

Neither can people accept, without question, some single English translation of canon nor can they throw up their hands and determine there is no way to know His full message… neither are realistic.

There is no doubt He has preserved His word on Earth… now it’s His people’s job to Seek it.
